Irving Azoff's Iconic Artist Group continues its acquisition binge, buying of Linda Ronstadt's recorded music assets, which is a combination or artist royalty income stream from her master recordings and also ownership of some of her masters. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The deal includes a partnership with Ronstadt and her business team — including manager John Boylan and Janet Stark — to market her catalog and preserve her legacy in the digital era. It follows on recent partnership/acquisitions with the Beach Boys and David Crosby.
"Linda's talent is unparalleled, but her courage and commitment to make important music of many genres is her legacy," said Azoff, chairman/CEO of the Azoff Company. "We will preserve that legacy for her at all costs."
